I first became involved with GOTR the first season. I heard the rumblings of this program and thought that sounds amazing and how do I get my daughter involved in it. So my older daughter was registered that first spring season in 2012. I have to say it was such an overwhelming experience and so memorable. Watching a then 8 year old little girl cross the finish line is something that I will never forget the rest of my life. From that point on I continued to take any opportunity to volunteer for this amazing organization, if it was stuffing bags, handing out race bibs anything I was willing to do it. Then I was approached to assist in a different way, they were looking for someone to manage and help with the community impact projects that the teams conduct during their seasons. I was initially hesitant as I often volunteer for to many things.  But I figured I can manage; after all I am just a grownup GOTR and I too have limitless potential. So I took that opportunity and here I am willing to help any team and have created resources and other materials for the teams to utilize to make the community impact project completely beneficial for the all the teams.

I am a mother of three wonderful and energetic children, who love to be moving playing sports, riding bikes etc. Married to an amazing man who supports all the things that I volunteer for, and is also always there for our children and their activities.   In addition I work full time, I also volunteer and coach soccer and teach religious education on Sunday morning. WHEW I am tired. I wouldn’t change a thing. I love Girls on The Run it is so much FUN!!!!!!!!!!!

 

If I touch two people, those two people touch two more people, before you know it; we have a whole bunch of people that are affected.  One person, can impact many…
